ABOUT IAS

As an educational and research centre, we strive to develop and apply a global perspective in fields such as discrimination, advocacy, social justice and migration.


To this end, our work focuses on current social, economic and environmental issues, migration, integration, development collaboration, global learning, humanitarian aid, intercultural dialogue, diversity and combating discrimination, monitoring, global health access, media and advocacy.

OUR VISION

Our vision is to become a leading research and educational centre and information bank on African and global perspectives.


Our mission is to raise awareness and provide education on social, economic and cultural development issues.

OUR VALUES

Our values are based on academic ethics and originality in the pursuit of providing alternatives to the "fallacy of science” on issues such as:

  • Integrity and morality.
  • Trust in employees and the professional team.

We believe and work for the good of society through networking and strategic partnerships and reject the strict approach of “one fits all” and “recycling the recycled.”

OUR STRATEGY

As an academic and research centre, independently and through networking, we strive to establish that institutionally participates with local, national and international level institutions by:

  • Education, raising awareness, providing information, calling for dialogue
  • National and international conferences, panel discussions
  • Integration of target groups through various communication channels
  • Publications and communication
  • Creating diversity and wealth in society
  • Advocacy for vulnerable groups
  • Project collaboration with other NGOs
